11th Annual RCD International Wheelchair Curling Bonspiel – Canadian Open
November 15 to 19, 2017, Richmond Curling Club

The Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) is seeking Rock Cleaner Volunteers to assist with the Bonspiel.

This competitive tournament showcases the exceptional skills of athletes with disabilities. Wheelchair curling is different in rules and they do not have sweepers. Therefore we recruit volunteers to clean the rocks for athletes during the competition, to ensure smooth play and full exhibition of performance and talents of athletes.

The duties involved cleaning the rocks at each end and line them up for the athletes. There is no pre-requisite but more suitable for people who are able to move and bend freely, and stand for 2 hours on the Ice Rink.
